|These maps are
not intended to show all details of the region. They may be
reorganized in the future to improve access speeds or provide better details
about participating areas, but it is assumed that most websites of area
representatives will contain more detailed map information, so it need not
be repeated here.
These maps make it easier for executives to browse and
to link graphically to GUIDE Area Profiles or Reports and the related
websites about an area. The links can reflect responsibilities which
may sometimes overlap, as in the case of a multistate utility service area,
or a regional agency serving multiple counties, or a metro area within
multiple counties or states.

|In particular, since many US
economic development organizations operate at the local county or city
level, and may have unfamiliar names, this process is intended to make it
much easier for executives to identify participating areas of potential
interest, and details about their areas.
As can be seen from the tables of
Participants and other contacts, many of the organizational or website names
might be hard to identify by other means, such as through Internet search
engines or alphabetical directory listings which don't clearly identify the
scope of services offered to investors or the areas which are served by the
organizations. This provides a graphical shortcut to find any
participating area of interest very quickly and easily.
Although non-participating areas may also be listed in the tables of
contacts, and can be found on these maps, we don't provide links from the
maps because of the work involved since there are literally thousands of
such organizations, often involving overlapping areas of service.
